We Got Hakim a Visa. Ali and Abdulhai Need Them Too.

Together with our allies, we flooded the State Department with emails asking them to grant a visa to Hakim, a leading peace activist in Afghanistan.  When Hakim re-applied, the U.S. Consulate reconsidered his case and granted the visa.

But Hakim is a mentor to the Afghan Peace Volunteers.  When he visits the United States, at least two of those youths should come with him

Abdulhai and Ali care deeply about their country.  They are not a risk to stay in the United States (as the State Department fears).  The only risk is that they will tell us what our occupation of their country is doing, and what they are doing to promote nonviolent alternatives.

We submitted a petition to the State Department with thousands of signatures, to no apparent effect.  Visas for Abdulhai and Ali have been denied. Now it's time to flood our government with emails again. 

Let them know how much this means!
